Concert: Riccardo Muti conducts Scriabin and Tchaikovsky
Location: Symphony Center, 220 S. Michigan Ave., Chicago, IL 60604
Tchaikovsky’s soul-stirring masterpiece, the Sixth Symphony, is among the greatest landmarks in the symphonic repertoire. The first movement’s tender love theme for strings and the scherzo’s electrifying march are just two highlights in a work of deep emotion. Scriabin’s Second Symphony presents an enticing mix of drama and lyricism that leads to a spectacularly triumphant ending.
